Harvard Experience

A Flight To Remember!

  • You will be immersed in the experience of a life-time.
  • Each and every one of our Experience Flights starts with a detailed briefing from your pilot about the Harvard and how it operates along with plenty of time for photos in and around the aircraft.
  • Flight Experiences in the mighty Harvard are classed as “Trial Lessons”, meaning you will be taught the first steps in learning to fly, and have hands-on control of the aircraft if you so wish.
  • You will be flying in a full RAF style flight suit to give you that true feeling of being at the controls of a fighter trainer.
  • Aerobatics are optional; this aircraft was used to teach dog-fighting evasive manoeuvres, so you may wish to include this aspect of flight training as well! You can select whether to add aerobatics to your experience at the checkout.
  • Your flight will be recorded via our in-cockpit video camera to give you the ultimate reminder of your memory-making experience. We’ll show you your video immediately after the flight, and you can choose whether to purchase it or not at the time! You also walk away with a FREE Harvard T-Shirt.
  • Details of all the available options are shown below, followed by some comments from our ecstatic customers, and some technical details about the aircraft.
  • To purchase a Harvard Experience Flight, click on your choice of experience below. You will be taken to our on-line Gift Voucher store on our Anglian Flight Centres (AFC) website.
